Former Expos great Vlad Guerrero inducted into baseball Hall of Fame

Former Montreal Expos outfielder Vladimir Guerrero has been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Guerrero was inducted Wednesday along with third baseman Chipper Jones, infielder Jim Thome and relief pitcher Trevor Hoffman.

Guerrero, in his second year on the ballot, received 392 votes for 92.9 per cent. Seventy-five per cent is needed for induction.

The 42-year-old becomes the youngest current Hall of Famer.

Guerrero was the MVP in the American League in 2004, his first season with the then Anaheim Angels, when he batted .337 with 39 home runs and 126 runs batted in, plus league-leading totals in runs (124) and total bases (366).

The Dominican Republic native also played for the Texas Rangers and Baltimore Orioles in a 16-season career in which he compiled a .318 batting average and .553 slugging percentage.

Guerrero was an eight-time winner of the Silver Slugger Award, seven times as a right-fielder and once as a designated hitter. He appeared in nine all-star games and had 13 seasons with a .300 or better batting average.

He had four 200-plus hit seasons, drove in 100 or more runs 10 times and scored 100 or more runs six times.

Guerrero's son, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., a minor-league third baseman in the Toronto Blue Jays organization, was recently ranked No. 4 on MLB's top prospects list.
